In Illinois, it is not allowed. The mediator is supposed to just send a letter stating the agreement to the other attorneys, and then the attorneys would draft it. On occasion, rare occasion, the attorneys will both agree and the parties will agree that the mediator should draw up the agreement. But, for the most part the lawyers do it.
